  • 2 large free-range eggs – beaten with 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • 2 sheets frozen all-butter puff pastry – thawed according to package directions
  • ½ cup homemade marinara pizza sauce
  • 12-16 oz whole milk mozzarella cheese – sliced or freshly hand-grated

Optional Topping Ideas (double the quantities as desired):

  • 7 oz Baby Bella cremini mushrooms – sliced
  • 1 medium red onion – thinly sliced
  • 1 and 1/2 green bell peppers – sliced into strips
  • 1 cup black olives – sliced
  • Small bunch of fresh basil leaves – torn
  • Handful of organic baby spinach leaves
  • Pinch of organic red pepper flakes – optional
  • 1 oz Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese – freshly grated optional


  • Preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the puff pastry package (usually around 400°F/200°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, unfold the thawed puff pastry sheets. Use a rolling pin to gently roll out each sheet to your desired thickness. Cut each sheet into rectangles or desired shapes for individual pizzas.
  • Place the cut puff pastry pieces onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each one. Brush the edges of each pastry piece with the beaten egg and water mixture to create a golden crust when baked.
  • Spread a thin layer of marinara pizza sauce over each puff pastry piece, leaving a small border around the edges. Layer the mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. If using additional toppings (bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, olives, spinach, red pepper flakes), distribute them evenly over the cheese.
  • If desired, sprinkle freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top for added flavor. Place the baking sheets in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
  • Once done, remove the puff pastry pizzas from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Before serving, garnish with torn fresh basil leaves for a burst of flavor and freshness.
  • Serve the puff pastry pizzas warm and enjoy!


  • – When rolling out the puff pastry, make sure to roll it evenly so that it bakes evenly.
  • – If you are using pre-made puff pastry, make sure to thaw it before using.
  • – For a crispy crust, brush the edges of the puff pastry with olive oil before baking.
  • – Use fresh ingredients for the best flavor.
  • – If you are baking multiple pizzas at once, make sure to rotate the pans halfway through baking.
